Syndication: The Corpus Christi Caller Times

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Authorities in Puerto Rico say 11 people have died and 31 others have been rescued after a boat carrying suspected migrants capsized near an uninhabited island close to the U.S. territory. The Coast Guard said Thursday that rescue efforts are still underway. A Coast Guard spokesman says it isn’t clear how many people were aboard the boat when it turned over. The incident is the latest in a string of capsizings across the region as migrants from Haiti and the Dominican Republic flee violence and poverty in their countries.
